Its a Biggun
with every 5th round or so a tracer perhaps?
May be. Looks like it just got delivered.
It's some kinda big-assed Russian go-to-hell machine gun meant to take down aircraft and other large crap.That'd be my guess.20mm or bigger?
Damn, we mite' have won the War if we had this during the Late Unpleasantness...........:)
Oh...OK. You just wanna kill Yankees with it now? I thought we was pals. Why you still sore? Ain't it about time y'all got over it?;)
I think this is the machine gun in your weapon ID post. See especially the one mounted on the tank.http://world.guns.ru/machine/rus/dshk-dshkm-e.htmlThat is quite a web site.Terry
Looks like a Russian DShk 1938 or a variation on that design.
12,7mm dshk heavy mg
Soviet Russian DShK 12.7x108mm heavy machine gun.
Yes, seems like it and was probably this that brought down the resupply copter on Ripcord. One of the best books on Vietnam below.http://freenorthcarolina.blogspot.com/2013/04/ripcord.html
DShk or dushka as its commonly called, meaning sweetie. In use since 38.
meaning sweetie.That's good. :)
commomly called a "dasheeka", ruskie version of our .50 mg. i think its like 12.7 or 14.2 mm, they had two heavy mg's.
12,7x109 mm& with their armor piercing rounds would be a real killer.
